CDE showcase sustainable future for Hard Rock Quarries at upcoming Open Day Event


Engineered For A Sustainable Future

On Wednesday 7th and Thursday 8th September, Malcolm Construction are set to open their doors and demonstrate how CDE wet processing technology has supported their move towards a sustainable future.  

A limited number of guests will have the opportunity to tour the wash plant and find out first-hand how the wet processing plant is helping Malcolm’s save void capacity, extend the life of their hard rock reserves and produce a range of in-spec sand and aggregates. 

Malcolm Construction, a division of The Malcolm Group, embarked upon their second project with wet processing industry experts CDE to install a 150tph construction & demolition (C&Dwaste recycling facility at its Beith site that will assist in the development of sustainable business solutions. 

They identified that landfill space for waste products they could not treat and repurpose was becoming limited. The company therefore set an objective to divert over 500,000 tonnes of material a year from landfill. In addition, Malcolm's sought to develop marketable and innovative solutions with a broad range of applications in the construction sector.

As the site is an existing hard rock quarry, which produces a wide range of aggregates, the solution developed by CDE can conserve their natural reserve and save tipping space. 

We felt that this investment was our best approach to delivering on our sustainability goals by saving void capacity, extending the life of hard rock reserves, developing resources from waste and aligning with further long-term business goals.”
Graeme Lindsay, Malcolm Construction Waste Transfer & Recycling Operations Manager
